Sunday lunch is a great British tradition, while cooking is a great French accomplishment.
Combine the two and what do you get? A totally swoon-worthy Sunday lunch spread (our mouths are watering at the very thought).
Enjoy the best of both world’s with today’s Big Deal on a lavish Sunday lunch for two – including four courses and a French Market buffet – at Hotel du Vin in the Old Town.
You will each get a glass of Buck’s Fizz too, making this a very special weekend treat.
Indulgent Sunday lunch
Available from noon to 4pm until 28th July, today’s Big Deal is for a four course Sunday lunch for two at Hotel du Vin, including a glass of Buck’s Fizz each.
The lunch starts with a seasonal soup before moving on to the lavish French market table. This is the centrepiece of Hotel du Vin’s Sunday lunch and features a generous buffet of fresh seafood, charcuterie, pates, rillettes, salads, vegetables and freshly baked artisan bread.
But don’t fill yourself up too much because afterwards it’s time for your main course. A traditional roast, perhaps? Or maybe fish & chips, steak frites, a burger, omelette Arnold Bennett or vegan gnocchi?
The indulgent experience ends with a dessert, which could include crème brûlée, profiteroles or classic chocolate mousse with Chantilly cream. Or why not opt for an artisan cheese board?
Classic bistro in Edinburgh’s Old Town
The French Bistro at Hotel du Vin is a cosy, welcoming space with restored fireplaces, reclaimed floorboards and lots of wine merchant memorabilia.
Service is polished but informal and the intimate courtyard area – complete with heaters – is well worth seeking out on milder days.
Ideal for a leisurely Sunday lunch, in other words.
Hotel du Vin is around a brisk ten-minute walk from Waverley train station. Pay parking can be found nearby at Q Car Park.
